    Default Do we need more hardcore fans?

    During the regular season Conseco only sold out like 15 or 16 somewhere in there times.I think that during the regular season Conseco needs to be louder kind of like how it was during the playoffs.Because if you think about it the players feed off of the energy the crowd gives them and sometimes they need the extra support.

    We may have millions and millions of hardcore fans, but if they don't live in the area, don't visit the area, have the money to go to games, don't have the time to go to the game, or aren't allowed to go to the games, it doesn't really matter.

    I think most of the folks who go to the games could do a better job of cheering/applauding, as long as they are making some kind of noise.

    Actually it was only 11 Games that soldout this past season , Don't forget it's was easier to sell out MSA because it had less seating , we would have sold out alot more games if we only had the MSA seating Amounts. Tickets in MSA were cheaper also , another point that could easily be made is Think back too several years ago ...how many pacers games were on TV ? It was hard to see a Game on TV as all you had was the occasional WTTV 4 Broadcast , or NBA on NBC , Now days You can see most every game on FOX Sports Midwest or NBA TV , SO basically were spoiled with games being so easily available on TV and it's cheaper.

    Personally I would rather goto the game , I like the people, the fans, the view , the pacemates and a chance to meet the players.

    You have to remember the economy hasn't been so great for awhile , I don't care what Georgie Bush says , anyways It's really hard for alot of people with families to enjoy a game as it is very expensive. Maybe I am wrong but I think since 9/11 people have been more about there families and doing things together. I usually go by myself to games , sometimes I take the kids if it's not a school night but my wife hates basketball with a passion and I have to be extra good during the basketball season

    I really don't know what the real issues are be it the economy , lack of intrest , people tired of being let down , new breed of fans or whatever , ticket prices ..I really dunno.

    I'm weird when it comes to live games. I like going, but it's never really been something were I felt compelled to do it a lot. I actually enjoy the TV more sometimes. I'm not sure why.

    I tried; doesn't work. The AM receive picked up the in-house sound instead. Whatever was being screamed out of the center-scoreboard speakers, the AM channel would pull up. Doesn't work.

    I don't know what station you're trying to tune in, but I've listened to Mark and Slick on more than one occasion when I've gone to games solo......

    MagicRat, I tried 1070. I want to say I also tried one of the FM affiliates. Both just picked up what was being blasted from the in-house speakers.

    The night I tried, I was on the lower-level near the tunnel. Maybe it would work on the upper level?

    Well, I've never had a problem, but I've always been in my usual balcony seats......

    One reason I don't go to games is because I'm not in Indy when they play. I live in Indy, but I go to school in Evansville so it's hard for me to get to Conseco for games.

    Even if I lived in Indy I probably wouldn't go to the games. They are just too expensive for decent seat, and I just don't have enough disposable income to spend on going to games.
